Richie,
Is this the drag radial tire that michilin has been workin on or is this a tire that just happened to work?
Hi Seb

I'll say this

When I became Michelin's drag race vendor in 2007 they asked me what type of tire is needed to be competitive .I gave them my input on what i think would work.

There will be skepticism an I'm kool with that.....But Michelin now has a tire to compete in the fastest no bar dot tire classes.

I'm just glad to be apart of it.

Peace Richie

We put the power one on our naked turbo bike for Maxton and it went 238mph in the mile, and there is still about 7 mph left.

You know what. What matter is that a representative of michilin cant answer a question for me, a potential customer without giving me a circle jerk of an answer. Unbelievable........
